    Look at that caveman go!

    That T Rex sure has a big head!

    Oop keeps shrinking!! In the first panel, his legs extend below T Rex’s eyes and almost touch the v shaped accent below the eye, in the second panel, there is no way his leg would extend that far…

    There is a long tradition in the art of many nations — and in cartooning as well — of symbolism taking precedence over realism. And after all, the whole premise of Alley Oop is hardly one of devotion to realism!

    Still, there’s no excuse for sloppy art work.

    It’s not “sloppy” art. It’s tight, concise, well inked, and beautifully colored. Look around gocomics for three minutes and see what passes for art these days. Get over the minor inconsistencies and enjoy the positives.

    I googled dicktracywars and got one hit. Landsberg: Ende der Ermittlungen wegen … – Augsburger Allgemeine…/1023660… – Translate this page

    The translation was not of the hit but the whole page.

    As Alley swats him with that shillelagh, the dino will shrink. Haven’t you seen Beowulf?

    I suppose that it’s the old " If you say something often enough you’ll convince people you’re right "; it’s a comic strip not a doctoral dissertation or scientific hypothesis or whatever. You’ve made your point – give it a rest.

    not what that crowd does SL. They miss villians and punch outs but they complain about inking.
    There’s a super big faux pas on the opening page today. Someone unfamiliar with Peanuts colored Woodstock’s family blue instead of yellow. That’s when to complain about inking.

    Yesterdays assumption from NG needs looking at – Don’t we realize they’re trying to make Oop better?
    Lets see, name calling, staying off topic, stated purpose to drive people away. Nope, looks like a vendetta to me. Very ironic when the story line is a solid theme on what do you do when a friend acts like an enemy.

    Wiz is in big trouble. Oop knows he started this. And he’s going to find out about that ill timed pat on Rex’s cheek. It won’t take too long before he figures out that Wiz did it all out of jealousy.
    Wiz needs someone to stand up for him now. Is it going to be the guy he’s challenged and insulted?

    @Adrian Snare, You mean “last century”, right? It’s not 2032 yet! ;-)

    Say there’s a pile of villians in the mix. They’ve captured Wiz so they can start a dino arms race. Oop goes in punching to rescue Wiz. Wiz confesses all.
    That still doesn’t have as much core as Oop’s decision if the insult is very fresh.
    I remember a Modesty Blaize where she turned her back on the guy in the mangled burning helicopter, and let him fall off the cliff. He had it coming but somehow my reaction was ‘’How can she do this?’’. Go figure.

    Seriously now. This is a COMIC, and supposed to be for fun. If you Real want to nit-pik about it, either Alley and his people or the dinosaurs as a whole are about 100 million years out of sync+/-. And from a taxonomic perspective, the entire group to which the “T-Rex” belonged had only two digits on each upper appendage, Not three fingers And an opposable thumb
